The Gibson 2018 Les Paul BFG P-90 Electric Guitar in Worn Ebony is a stripped-back, no-frills affair that delivers classic tones and awesome playability without an over-embellished finish. Whether you're hitting the studio or taking to the stage, the Les Paul BFG is a tonal powerhouse that once you pick up, you'll never want to put down. Every model comes with a padded gig bag, and accessory kit to keep your new baby in pristine condition.
Classic Les Paul design
The 2018 Les Paul BFG is built with a classic tonewood partnership in the form of a mahogany back coupled with a maple top. The mahogany has been treated to an ultra-modern weight relief rout, which takes out the heavyweight feel without compromising on tonal quality. The beauty here is maximised comfort whilst still pulling classic Les Paul sustain and warmth. The maple top rounds out the high-end clarity to deliver that coveted well-rounded Les Paul tone.
The stripped-back worn ebony aesthetic of the BFG gives it a raw and untamed character, encouraging you to let loose and rock out. The same arched top you'd expect to find on an LP is present and correct, and the satin finish provides a smooth feel that prevents unwanted stickiness or tackiness from impeding your movement.
Sturdy and responsive neck
Fitted to the body is a solid mahogany neck, which has been treated to a rounded profile to afford a substantial yet manageable feel in the hand. Married to the neck is a torrified granadillo fingerboard, which is home to 22 frets that are free of position inlays, continuing the stripped-back and bare look. The single-cutaway body profile allows you to reach the upper frets with ease. The classic 24.75-inch scale length ensures classic Les Paul warmth in every note, whilst the 12-inch fingerboard radius provides a delightful playing area for your fretting hand to explore.
The headstock is home to vintage-style keystone tuners, which uphold tuning integrity with absolute precision whilst you rock out. The partnership of tuners and Tektoid nut stabilises string tension to maintain the playing feel across each string throughout even the most energetic of performances. Fitted to the body is a Tune-o-Matic bridge and stop bar tailpiece, which anchors each string securely to optimise intonation and sustain.
Classic P-90 pickups
The Gibson 2018 Les Paul BFG P-90 is equipped with a pair of vintage-style P-90 single-coils, which deliver classic Gibson tones from fat and saturated riffs to screaming leads. The powerful mid-range energy provides creamy and rich tones that are the stuff of legend. Independent volume and tone pots and a three-way pickup selector switch afford precise tone-shaping control.
